Fort McCoy says 97% of Afghan refugees being temporarily housed at the military base in western Wisconsin have been vaccinated for COVID-19 as well as measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox.
They released footage from a mass vaccination clinic late last week.
The U.S. on September 10 halted U.S.-bound flights of Afghan evacuees after discovering a few cases of measles among new arrivals in the United States, including at Fort McCoy.
The Afghan refugees at Fort McCoy, where roughly 12,700 evacuees were staying as of Wednesday, are being resettled across the country. The immigration process includes completing the required vaccinations.
